Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? In Acadian as well as French Canadian communities, there is a common New Year's greeting: 'Bonne et sainte année, et le paradis à la fin de vos jours. (Good, holy, and Happy New Year, and Paradise at the end of your days)'

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? The seigneurial system was a form of land settlement modelled on the French feudal system. It began in New France in 1627 with the formation of the Compagnie des Cent-Associés that was initially responsible for handing out land grants and seigneurial rights. The land was divided into 5 by 15 kilometre plots, usually along major rivers like the St. Lawrence. They were then further subdivided into narrow, but long lots for settlement. These lots were usually long enough to be suitable for faming, and they provided everyone who lived on them with equal access to neighbouring farms and the river.

Over time, Quebec has gone through a series of name changes.

1760 to 1763, it was simply Canada
1763 to 1791 - Province of Quebec
1791 to 1867 - Lower Canada
1867 to present - Quebec, Canada
